Snippets by Steve D. Patient Expert Posted Fri 12 Sep 2008 9:10am Our son began to speak somewhere between his fourth and fifth birthday.

Change Resistance and House Moving by Gavin B. Facebook Posted Sun 22 Mar 2009 12:00am If my posts have been a little sporadic of late, it's because I'm in the midst of moving house. We've just done a knockdown and rebuild. A project which has taken almost two years from concept to completion. Well, partial completion at least, there's still the gardens, blinds, driveway, pool etc to do yet. During that time, I've learned a lo ... Read on »
